My heart is so damn happy today. Yesterday I was overwhelmed. Today I'm happy.
First and foremost, we received an amazing donation just in time for the holidays. I was able to buy a bunch of meds, pay some of our bills, and have money for some spay/neuters. So incredible.
And then...I receive this photo. This is Godiva. We rescued her from Downey shelter after her 4 kittens were all adopted (at just 4 weeks old AND STILL NURSING). It should seriously be illegal. It was going to be our first time rescuing from Downey Shelter. We planned to rescue mama and her 4 babies. Instead, mama was left without any kittens, engorged, depressed, and just spayed (so extra sore). She was networked hard because she was black (or so we thought) and they feared she'd be euthanized now that her babies were adopted. So of course we pulled her (along with several other kitties- Eminem, Hayley, Violet, Amaya, Winter, and more)
She remained severely depressed so we decided to give her some babies to take care of. Normally, we have a strict policy against unrelated babies being placed with a mama but she was so depressed and so engorged, we took the risk. She immediately cared for them. All 6 babies. The kittens became known as our Candy Hearts litter. Twizzler, Licorice, Skittles, Taffy, Gummy Bear, and Hot Tamale. Mama loved those babies and off they went to their forever homes.
Surprisingly, mama was not a black kitty but instead a brown one. We thought she'd be adopted quickly. What we didnt know was...her perfect home was nearly a year away. I always say...a cat goes where they are meant to. She was meant for this home.
This weekend, we finalized her adoption to be a friend to a senior kitty who recently lost their buddy. Immediately, Godiva started grooming his face and he wanted to snuggle her. They are already best friends. The perfect adoption story.
Mallory, our kitten with the broken spine, has finally had her surgery. She was also spayed at the same time. She is in pain but is doing really well considering such an intense surgery. We will update you as she heals and is feeling better. Feel free to also follow her foster Mama @hollywood_rescues
